ETF flows on Q2 continue at almost the same torrid pace as Q1 and seem well on their way to adding $200 billion in new investor funds in 2013, according to Nicholas Colas, chief market strategist at New York-based ConvergEx Group.  Flows into equity products are 60% of total this quarter to date, lower than the 80% of Q1 2013, he said. 

Japan is the white-hot ticket among country-specific investing, with almost 25% of all ETF flows this quarter going into just two such products, Colas said.
